I'm going on record and saying that the 2013 holiday party season will be the season of the skirt! At this point in life you've probably accumulated enough sparkly and jewel tone dresses that take up far too much real estate in your closet. And the major downside of those classic holiday pieces - you can only wear them once a season! Then you have to remember which party you wore that piece to last year so you don't re-wear it to the exact same party with the same people the next year.
Female problems. Men just don't understand these things.
Do your wallet and closet a favor and pick up a skirt (or two) that can pull double duty during the holiday party season and beyond. Throw on your favorite blouse, tuxedo jacket, sparkly necklace, and sky high heels to give any one of the skirts above a festive feel. Then, re-wear that baby to a different party with different accessories for a completely different look. Finally, wear one to work with your regular work attire on any random Wednesday. Buy an extra couple of coffee with the money you saved by investing in such a versatile skirt.
Would you forgo a dress and wear a skirt to a holiday party? My office and the hubs' office respective holiday parties are four days apart this year and I'm thinking a skirt will make an appearance at one or both of them!
